Wilderness Hut | New Zealand Backcountry Lodging

Become One With Nature!

Our wilderness hut sits at the very top of Kaweka Hunting on the boundary with the Kaweka State Forest Park and ranges. Many guests love to escape for a night up here for absolute solitude, and everyone is always amused by the tin hunt with the flush toilet in the middle of nowhere!

A wilderness experience at Kaweka Hunting is an escape back to the ‘real’ New Zealand, with hidden pockets of indigenous native forest scattered amongst the gullies and rugged limestone cliffs pushed up from the earth over thousands of years. Exploring and discovering our stunning property is exciting and a night ‘camping out’ in our wilderness hut is a peaceful and unique experience, treasured by visitors from all around the world who tell us ‘when I imagined New Zealand, this is just how I pictured it’.

Hear the sound of red stag roaring or listen for the lonesome call of an endangered kiwi before retiring for the night, in remote country overlooking the distant lights of two cities 3,000 feet below.
